SANTA MONICA (CBSLA.com) — The South Coast Air Quality Management District is promoting the latest approved police pursuit vehicle – a Ford Crown Victoria running exclusively on natural gas.
The Ford model is on display at the AltCar Expo in Santa Monica, along with hydrogen fuel cell and electric cars.
The AQMD’s Sam Atwood says the vehicle can help to reduce costs to the city while protecting the environment and maintaining performance.
“It goes really fast, over 100 mph. It runs on clean-burning natural gas. That means the pollutants are greatly reduced,” he told KNX1070’s Megan Goldsby.
